Snowfall actor Juan Javier Cardenas will join AMC's The Walking Dead for the show's tenth season.
First appearing in The Walking Dead #131, Dante is an integral member of the Hilltop community, and he goes on to have a relationship with Maggie Greene. However, as Lauren Cohan, who played the character, is no longer on the show, Dante will be involved in his "own unique story," according to Skybound. Despite her departure, Cohan teased in April the possibility of her making a return.
Cardenas is also known for his roles on Damnation, S.W.A.T. and Lethal Weapon.
After the fall of the Kingdom and the character cull of the Fair, Season 10 picks up with another time jump from Season 9's wintery finale. Starting in spring, the communities are struggling to stick to the borders imposed by Alpha and are keen to seek revenge for their fallen comrades. Although zombies are still a threat in Season 10, the ongoing war with the Whisperers will be the main focus.
AMC's The Walking Dead stars Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, Josh McDermitt, Christian Serratos, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Nadia Hilker, Dan Fogler, Angel Theory, Lauren Ridloff and Eleanor Matsuura. The series returns for its 10th season in October.
